Hello,

First of all, clear me what you want? you want cloud hosting or what?

Rackspace is provide a hosting service with cloud server & it is the good company,
if you can pay good amount then contact rackspace.

 VmWare cloud  is also good & their support is well.

The requirement for cloud was just to get the storage space to store huge backup files. We might need them to restore these files once in a while.

Your best bet is a cloud provider that has both cheap unlimited storage and the option to fire up SQL on demand.

Currently your options include Rackspace, AWS and Azure.
The leader of the pack, the platform with the most extensive usage, third party support and documentation is AWS.
They even have an automated procedure for receiving huge files via physical media, so you can send your huge files on an external disk without abusing your bandwidth.
